RP wins as Manny Pacquiao goes for the 8th!

The World Super Welterweight Championship is conquered once again by our very own Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao yesterday at Dallas, Texas. He won over Mexico’s Antonio Margarito with 120-108, 118-110 and 119-109 in a unanimous decision.

The match was pretty tight since the Mexican boxer got through the fight till the 12th round saying, “I’m a Mexican, we fight until the end.” His trainer, Robert Garcia shouldn’t have let him continue till the very end what with his fighter’s cuts and bruised eyes. Margarito’s face was so swollen he will allegedly undergo facial surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone in his face, stated on ESPN.com. Pride should not be a determining factor in allowing a hopelessly outclassed fighter to continue into the danger zone but Garcia decided that bragging rights were more important than the safety of his fighter.

Th fight was entertaining because of Pacquaio’s showmanship. He was too fast for Margarito despite his height and strong structure. The PacMan’s movement, power and accuracy as well as his speed of punching, imagination, courage and tireless volume of training raised the boxing sport to a new dimension.

The greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the world, who also serves as a Congressman in the country and sings with his rock band, produced a stunning performance to win an unprecedented eighth world title in eight weight divisions.
Who will ever beat The PacMan? I guess that’s for the whole world to wonder in a long time. Congratulations to Pacquiao! You made the Filipinos proud.
